Let's not get too off-base here. They have said that they comply with the
LGPL as it relates to changes to GTK+, and stated how they are complying.
I'm still curious why they felt "clean room" techniques were necessary
to reimplement a proprietary GDK, since the LGPL would clearly allow them
to link it with their proprietary server anyway. But since we a superior
method of doing this kind of thing is already in v1.3, it probably doesn't
matter very much.
